Skellig Coast

Explore the Skellig Coast on the Iveragh Peninsula of County Kerry

1500 years ago, when early Christian monks reached the Skellig Coast they discovered heaven on earth – and you will too.
Located in the far west tip of the Iveragh Peninsula and stretching from Kells around to Castlecove, the region boasts the spectacular UNESCO World Heritage Early Christian site on Skellig Michael, rich cultural landscapes steeped in history, the Iveragh Gaeltacht where the Irish language is still spoken and the only Gold Tier Dark Sky Reserve in the Northern Hemisphere – all set against the stunning backdrop of the Wild Atlantic Way.
